There are so many webcams on the market for you to choose from depending upon your budget and requirements. For me, I’d like the one which is affordable, with good video quality and working with Linux. Last but not least, it has a physical cover which can cover the lens. And I’d found such a webcam: Sherry webcam.
I know it’s not a branded webcam, but, it’s very affordable, about $40. It’s capable of capturing video with 30 FPS in 1920×1080. Not only that, it also has a built-in microphone, 97 degree view angle, and comes with a tripod and clip. Best of all, it works with Linux and comes with a slide cover; when the cover is on, you know for sure no hackers in the world can spy on you.
